Amia Lieblich (Hebrew: עמיה ליבליך‎; born 1939) is an Israeli psychologist and writer, who has gained prominence in the field of qualitative research (and narrative studies) in psychology.[1] Lieblich is professor emeritus from Hebrew University, where she has also served as dean of students. Since her retirement from Hebrew University she is a faculty member at the Academic College of Tel Aviv.

Lieblich's research focuses, among other fields, on various aspects of Israeli society including military service, the Kibbutz movement, life stories of women, and the "new family" in Israel.[2]

Lieblich has published numerous books in Hebrew, some of which were translated to several languages, including English and Japanese. Her publications involve academic works as well as books intended for a wider audience.

She has also co-edited, with Ruthellen Josselson and Dan P. McAdams, the eleven-book series "The Narrative Study of Lives."
